Liquid Force Says:
What do you get from over a decade of board design and collaboration between kiteboarding pioneer Jason Slezak and legendary shaper Jimmy Redmon? You get the precise, refined twintip that is the Liquid Force Legacy. Back for its fourth season the Legacy’s full double concave hull, progressive rail concave, split “v” tip design and calculated flex pattern provides unmatched control and response on the water. The flow of the Legacy’s outline combined with the subtle yet precise bottom contours simply plow through chop, as if it wasn’t even there, while allowing for fast drag free water flow along the entire bottom of the board.
This provides superior edge hold for fast upwind reaches, smooth downwind carves, powerful takeoffs, and feather soft landings. The channel free bottom results in a hand shaped organic feel, yet utilizes state-of-the-art materials such as the carbon center reinforcement and full vector net carbon weave bottom sheet for reduced weight, controlled flex, and added pop and life to the board. The Legacy, much like Jason, likes to ride everything and in every condition; from huge lofty airs, to powered park sessions, to playful slashes the Legacy will take everything that you throw at it and ask for more.

Our Testers Say:
“Comfy footpads/straps, reasonable weight, fast, smooth riding, edges well but a bit skatey, maybe bigger fins if you want a locked in feel. Very capable board!” // Tom Turley
Solid pop, smooth landings, surprisingly smooth through the chop. Super comfortable pads with gel-like padding. Combined with its plush bindings, the board’s shock absorption makes landing big airs effortless.” // Tiberiu Anghel
“This board is amazing—I could ride this board all day long and do everything with it: boosts awesome airs, really holds an edge in the carves and has excellent upwind abilities.” // Chris Myles
The Legacy is back for another year as Jason Slezak’s do everything board from performance freeride to unhooked freesyle and playful carving. The Legacy offers three stance width options and some extra lateral adjustment built into the strap base for fine tuning and four hole options on each side of the binding for adjusting the duck stance. The Legacy offers a fairly solid flex pattern that allows you to really load and release the board for solid pop. It’s also really fun to carve and slash rail to rail turns. With 4.0 fins, the Legacy is still fairly skatey and active which requires a bit more back foot pressure for locking in an edge to jam upwind. The fairly simple bottom contour feels fast in the water and the Legacy has no problem slicing through choppy conditions with ease. Without a doubt one of the true all around boards that will keep you boosting and slashing on the water all day long.
The Legacy came with the Pro pad and strap system. The strap is all encompassing and soft with a terry cloth-like liner and three Velcro adjustments for getting the right coverage. The footbed has a soft rubber-like material that is both very comfortable and grippy. The footbed has a fair amount of contour under your arch and the heel cup is sufficient to keep your foot locked into the binding. Overall, a very feature rich binding which is one of the most comfortable of the test and positively commented upon unanimously.
